Founded in 1974, the Women?s Studies program at Rowan is one of the oldest in the nation. The program examines the status, perspectives and contributions of women and interaction between gender and other social identities. Both classroom-based and public educational activities are designed to broaden understanding of gender and diversity issues in education, in institutional culture and in society at large.
